Directed by Katsitsionni Fox
For generations, Indigenous peoples have asked humanity to raise its consciousness for our Mother Earth. Now, Indigenous women are raising their voices to demonstrate what living in balance looks like, by sharing gifts given to them by Creation. Rematriation Magazine centered the voices of 10 Indigenous women to share stories of resilience, leadership, spirituality, healing and honoring life.

While visiting Machu Picchu, Matika’s late grandmother, revealed to her in a dream, to bring the lens to her own people. Since, she has photographed members from over 300 sovereign nations, throughout 40 states. In her photographic endeavor “Project 562”, she reawakens culture and captures the spirit of our indigenous communities.
